Telephone appointments are now available to ALL patients of Watersprings Health Centre! Yes we are staying open and still taking face-to-face appointments when it is needed for your care… we just ask that you call first so we can book you in at the appropriate time. We understand how difficult it must be for those of you needing treatment for health issues especially our elderly and those who are struggling with mental health or domestic violence. Although things are a little different with how we ‘see’ you at this time we are here to support you as much as we can. Telephone appointments are available for any health need…antenatal, chronic disease, mental health and also just the standard general appointment you may need during the coming months. Please don’t think we are too busy for you or that your health needs are not important as we give time to help each other stay well and supported throughout this pandemic. Choose ‘Telephone Consultation’ when booking online, making sure your mobile number is entered correctly or if you think you will require a face-to-face appointment please call reception directly on 3341 7244 and our staff will be happy to help.
